I know I’m probably a little strange but I love having “destinations” in my home. I imagine some corners in my home as a getaway for reading, blogging or just quiet time.
I’m kind of smitten with this little corner with the fun blue chair, above, from Country Living. I love how it is all nestled in the corner with easy access to all of those books! THAT would be a great destination for me!
Having a lamp and ottomans by my sofa make this “destination” in my living room more inviting, useful and comfortable! It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive to create a desirable ”destination!”
Leave it to Martha to have an awesome coffee area to go to in her home. Pretty fancy, huh?
My coffee corner is not as fancy as Martha’s, but I do like having some syrups, pretty creamers and a variety of mugs on hand to make my morning coffee ritual more special! Not like going to Starbucks, maybe, but still fun to have a “place” to go each morning.
I set up a little herb and potting area last summer by setting up a small gardening table in my backyard. I cannot wait for the planting season to come around again! Even though I don’t really have a green thumb, it was relaxing for me to go out and snip herbs right in my own backyard. It was so simple to set up, yet that table really does create a place with a purpose — a place I enjoy going!
And if you are really ambitious, you can get more elaborate with decorating and setting up your destinations! I love this tropical backyard destination from Remodeling Guy! Why have a boring back yard when you can have a tropical vacation just outside your door?
What about creating a little spa destination in your own bathroom? I have great plans to work on my own master bathroom someday but for now, at least it has a nice deep tub! That is about as close to a spa as I’ll probably get these days!
So many ways to create a little destination in your home! What destinations do you have or aspire to have in your home?
